For my birthday earlier this week, Rob offered to make whatever I wanted for dinner. I requested Italian meatballs (Rob is half Italian and his mom has some amazing Italian recipes).
The meatballs were delicious, and Rob was able to jot down a version of the recipe, even though his mom and grandma don't usually measure the ingredients when they make the meatballs.
One of my best friends is getting married in a month, and I recently attended a bridal shower for her.
Today is my 27th birthday, which means I have two more years of getting older before I'm eternally 29.
To celebrate, my baking coworker Erin Lippitz made homemade Hostess-style cupcakes, complete with cream filling and an icing squiggle across the top. They are awesome.
For Christmas, I crocheted our niece a picnic basket and some play food.
She had a birthday recently, so I figured I'd add to her toy food collection.
Robert K. O'Daniell, my friend and former coworker, recently shared a smart solution for coralling magnetic chip clips in his kitchen.
I used to work in The News-Gazette's features department, and my sister would occasionally, teasingly, ask me if I'd covered a cat fashion show yet.
(The question was a nod to Anchorman, which is a hilarious movie about a TV newsroom.)
Rob has been perfecting his recipe for homemade, oven-baked chicken nuggets. They're really good, so I thought I'd share.
(They're even better when fresh out of the oven and dipped in this homemade ranch dressing, as we figured out the other night.)
If you're still sticking to your New Year's resolution for healthy eating, you might want to skip this blog post.
This recipe for homemade ranch dressing decidedly does not fit in that category.
